Yeah, it was definitely a time of large (and fast paced) change, looking at old photos of the time, photos with even something like a 10 year difference show radical change in the landscape of the cities. Canโ€™t imagine how much of a societal impact thatโ€™d have, really made me appreciate reading this, itโ€™s like a snapshot of the time period. Itโ€™s a great piece of literature - at first (before reading it) I thought it was just going to be a amusing story about a snooty cat, but thereโ€™s so much social commentary in it on the side-lines (and thatโ€™s only the bits I pick up on, Iโ€™m sure thereโ€™s much more).

(and the books you mention sound interesting, Iโ€™ll have to make a note of them, thanks!)
